I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.

Joan Miró i Ferrà (April 20, 1893 – December 25, 1983) was a Spanish painter, sculptor and ceramist born in Barcelona, Spain. His work has been interpreted as Surrealism, a sandbox for the subconscious mind, a re-creation of the childlike, and a manifestation of Catalan and Spanish pride.
